In the old days, the stables and the food supplies of the Earls of Urgell (798-1413 were located in these lands in Flix, Ribera del Sió. Now we have designed a viticulture project addressed to obtain hight quality wines with all the nuances and flavours that the rich soil and microclimate of the riverside offer us.

It is a property of impressive beauty, a place of quietness and tranquillity that also includes the growing of olive trees and cereals, sheep and cattle raising and game preserve. They are different elements of a comprehensive project designed to achieve a perfect ecological balance.

We work, experiment and study vine behaviour in order to obtain high quality grapes. According to Juan Porcioles “a great wine starts in the vineyard and we need to take good care of it”. A wide range of varieties are grown in the country state: Tempranillo, Garnacha Tinta, Syrah, Merlot, Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Cabernet Sauvignon and Viognier. The vineyards are grown in a very heterogeneous soil.

These lands are not very deep and they are poor in organic matter, rich in loam and mud, at an altitude of 310 metres, with a Mediterranean weather of continental influence.
